and i walk away, thinking, well then why isn't the base motivated to do something about this? mcconnell has proven over and over and over again, if you just have an "r" behind your name, you're going to get the loyalty of the conservatives because they want to take down president obama that bad. they'll take a couple of nuts in the crowd if they can just get rid of president obama's agenda. that's the bottom line. if that doesn't motivate liberals in this country, then i don't know what does. republicans or tea party, whatever, they have yet, keep in mind, they have yet to denounce any racist comments produced by the right wing talkers in the past months. the tea party has no plan on the table for 1 in 4 african-americans that are living in poverty. they don't have a plan. we're at a defining moment in american history. we take a step forward, now what are we going to do? lose our guts, lose our belly, lose our confidence and all of a sudden, throw it away after 22 months and nobody's going to show up? let me tell you something, folks, this is a crucial time in american history.
